Florida’s Northbound started out as a solo project from frontman Jonothan Fraser, but has evolved over the last three years into a sometimes-acoustic / sometimes-full-band act, similar to Evan Weiss’ early experiences with Into It. Over It. While Northbound takes on a more pop-punk vibe, "Slug," which you can stream exclusively in the replies, will also resonate with fans of many of the grunge-leaning acts gaining popularity today; a comparison to Citizen also comes to mind. “Slug” is taken from the re-worked LP Death Of A Slug, which Animal Style Records will release this summer. It can be pre-ordered here if you like what you hear.

Most of the coverage that has surrounded Heartless Breakers so far on the site has been centered around the fact that it's the new project of former Daytrader member Matt Mascarenas. But while we're premiering their new song "Carbon Copy" today, I'd rather point out that they take cues from early-era Taking Back Sunday while mixing in elements of post-hardcore -- ultimately, it's something completely separate from Daytrader in my mind, and in a good way. The band's debut full-length, The Great Give Back, comes out on March 10th, and if you like "Carbon Copy" in the replies, you can pre-order the album via Animal Style Records.

It would be easy to overwhelm you with descriptions of what Blind Mice sounds like. The New Bedford, MA-based band, which features Half Hearted Hero guitarist AJ Mills and former Ra Ra Riot drummer Michael Ashley, takes cues from a lot of '90s alt-rock, but I also hear a lot of more modern punk-rock in their new song, "Fifteen," which we're premiering in the replies. The easiest comparison to point to would be Polar Bear Club, with those gruff vocals paving the way -- but by no means is this band ripping off anything, incorporating shades of Jimmy Eat World and Third Eye Blind into their new EP, Sunday Songs. That release drops on March 17 via Animal Style Records, and you can pre-order...

Living in Gainesville for four years taught me lots of things, and one of them was that there existed in Central and Northern Florida a hotbed of talented punk and emo bands. I watched groups like Gainesville's Dikembe and Orlando's You Blew It! play house shows before they signed to Tiny Engines and Topshelf Records, respectively, and I discovered Orlando's Henrietta when they put out a split with Tallahassee's Echo Base (who they will hit the road with this summer - dates in the replies) and South Florida's Gillian Carter. Henrietta, which will release its debut LP, The Trick Is Not Minding, on August 28 via Animal Style, had a few older EPs which I then checked out at the time - and...

Animal Style Records owner Matt Medina got married last month and made a 7" consisting of four cover songs to commemorate the occasion. Now, that 7" is available on Bandcamp for $4, and all proceeds will go to FreedomToMarry.org.
We got married on January 19, 2014, and with the help of our friends in Mixtapes, Born Without Bones, We Are the Union and Wolves at Bay, we released a 7" to commemorate the occasion. We feel very fortunate to have had the opportunity to celebrate our marriage with our family and friends, but we recognize that not everyone in our country is so fortunate. We want to make the songs available to a larger audience and donate the proceeds to freedomtomarry.org...
